Step Aside, Ankle Boots—These Over-the-Knee Styles Are Back in a Big Way

I’ll admit it: When it comes to getting dressed in the morning, I can be a little bit lazy. I know I’m a fashion editor, but it happens to the best of us, right? Well, I know how to play the game, and one trick I always used throughout college was to wear a cool pair of tall boots with a comfortable outfit which instantly made me look more polished and put-together—even if it was just your average sweater-and–skinny-jeans combo.

Much to my ease, over-the-knee styles are coming back in full force with options all over the market. And as the weather continues to drop, I will happily continue to sport tall boots with almost every one of my outfits. There are many pairs on the market, but I went ahead and rounded up some of the best from classic black leather to trendier versions with prints and color options. Either way, scroll ahead to find your new favorite boots.
